Early hominins—particularly the australopithecines, whose brains and anatomy are in many ways more similar to ancestral non-human apes—are less often referred to as "human" than hominins of the genus Homo. Several of these hominins used fire, occupied much of Eurasia, and gave rise to anatomically modern Homo sapiens in Africa about 200,000 years ago. They began to exhibit evidence of behavioral modernity around 50,000 years ago. In several waves of migration, anatomically modern humans ventured out of Africa and populated most of the world
So is God God, the Son or The word or The Spirit?
I say the Bible gets more confusing every time I read it.
As for the topic:
I believe it's quite strange to think that God who is omniscient would make such a mistake by creating humanity that He needs to kill His only Son to correct it.
That makes no sense to me at all, no matter which angle I use to look at it. So that's the end of Christian logic for me.
Sacrifice has a strange effect on people. The Plains Indians sustained themselves on the Bison, the American buffalo. Food, clothing, and shelter depended on the Bison. Yet, they revered the Bison for the sacrifice these animals made for them, considered them sacred, and felt compelled to perform elaborate rituals in their honor.
Donald Trump may be an adulterer, he may be crude, and he may have cheated people out of the money he owed them. If you doubt that Donald Trump is God’s chosen leader, however, you may be inviting misfortune upon yourself and succeeding generations of your family according to some Evangelical leaders. Mary Colbert for one, is certain of this:
“It’s not that Donald Trump is all that perfect of a guy. We all know he’s not. And we know that he’s not necessarily perfect in every way that we would like. That’s not how God works. He works through the ones he chooses. We don’t choose them.”
“All we have to do is recognize them and when you recognize a chosen one and you have the discernment to know that they’ve been chosen and know that that’s the will of God, then your life will be blessed. And if you come against the chosen one of God, you are bringing upon you and your children and your children’s children curses like you have never seen. It puts a holy fear in me.
There is some semantics going on
Jesus died for the greater glory of God
showing mercy to us is just close to the apex of God's glory
so.... Jesus died for God's glory as an overarching first purpose and to that end died for us... but as a secondary reason
"He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name sake'
Thanks I know that my way of thinking would be called Satanic by most of them.
As reason is indeed the greatest enemy of (most) faiths.
Jesus did not die. It was a long sleep by human standards, unless you're in a coma.
Good heavens! These son's a bitches are more demonic than any dark world creatures. Fear, retaliation, revenge, punishment, such a wonderful display of unconditional love. I sure hope both them have had medical procedures to inhibit having offspring.
Trump's approval rating is one of the lowest for the first 100 days. I'm satisfied with the poll numbers.
Trump is a flip-flopper. Nobody knows where he stands.
That s not a strength when our allies are confused and worried.
